was beauty and the beast. right? of course, jfk went on to win that election that year, whether or not it was because of the debate, i don't know, but thus was born the entire school of punditry that says it's all about the optics and watching things with the sounds off and all that existentially exhausting stuff we still say today. but here is the relevant context for understanding what happened last night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we had was in 1960. here are all of the other years that we have since have televised presidential debates. every four years now we have these debates on tv. the only years, though, so these are all the years, right, right? the only years, though, in which you had an incumbent president running against a challenger in all of the years we've had presidential debates on tv are these years. so in terms of understanding the historical context of what happened last night when mitt romney beat president obama in this first debate, this is the universe of like thi

that that does not happen in the six weeks leading up to the election, because the narrative of the campaign has been that the the democrats and particularly obama has had four years to make it better and he failed to do so and the numbers prove it. if things get better in october, that undermines a fundamental aspect of a campaign strategy, and i am not questioning whether or not mitt romney, a whole series of republicans want the economy better. right now it's strategically better if the economy is worse, given that argument for election. >> i don't know how you argue that 114,000 jobs is the economy getting a lot better. >> i'm not saying there is. i'm saying there would be a desire for this to remain and look worse in the weeks leading up. >> let's go to john harwood for the last word on this. >> every out party before an election wants voters to feel things are going badly so they vote for change. that's how it is whether republicans are in power or democrats are in power. >> thank you very much. i greatly appreciate your insight. cleaning up the mess. it took three weeks but governor romne

, this election season, it is political. president obama says there is more to be done. governor romney says this is not what a real recovery looks like. the labor department reports the economy added a seasonally adjusted 114,000 jobs last month which brought down the jobless rate to an unexpected 7.8 percent. here is a look at the unemployment rate since 28 state. the gray area on the left is the president since the recession. the rate has not been this low sin the inauguration in january of 2009. of course, this could be a potential boost to the president's campaign. no incumbent since the great depression has been re-elected with unemployment above 8 percent. the president said the economy is moving forward and suggested governor romney's policies would spark another financial disaster. >> we made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. i cannot allow that to happen and i won't allow it. >>trace: governor romney downplayed the new jobs numbers. he wrote in a statement and i quote, "this is not what a real recovery looks like. we created fewe
that if he were to be re-elected, that's what is going to happen? >> that is what is so fascinating. i've speakton wayne, the whole issue is they're going to take away your guns and the truth is president obama is very vocal about supporting the second amendment. he knows people feel strongly about it. in many parts of the country, guns are simply a part of life. there's been no evidence he's going to change it. when the nra says he's going to change it, he's going to change it. >> they're just point tock the silence as his not coming to get it yet. >> exactly. >> i've been reading about this new organize, not really new but stronger the last couple of years. students for concealed carry on college campuses, after virginia tech, they wanted the right to carry weapons. i know here in atlanta where the schools are active, some students are active trying to get those. they just got a victory in colorado being able to have guns there on campus. you can't take them to the football game or any ticketed events but that's something i'm sure as these candidates go to these college campuses they
the election? meanwhile a shifted swagger as mitt romney waits to see if his numbers swing up after a decisive debate. he certainly has a spring in his step out on the campaign trail. on the whole 47% comment that never came up at the debate romney says he was wrong. as for the president, he put some mileage between himself and the mile high city with much more fiery talk than anything we heard from him at the actual debate. but is the president's tough talk too little too late? good morning from washington. it's friday, october 5th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. we'll have much more on the new jobs numbers in minutes with economist mark zandi, texas senator kay bailey hutchison is here, and an exclusive this morning senior adviser to the president david plouffe. but first right to my first reads of the morning. we'll hear from the obama and romney campaigns on the jobs numbers. i'm sure a ton on the campaign trail. they're in the big three battleground states at some point shadowing each other yet again this morning in the old dominion and the president hits cleveland, oh
politics, you've probably noticed that polling of the presidential election has swung quite decidedly in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to the

at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans have requested early ballots. and 26% of democrats. and these early votes in ohio could really be symbolic. mitt romney likely will not become president unless he can take ohio. more john fuglesang coming up on the "full court press" after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were so helpful when they didn't even have much themselves. seeing people and their hardships made me want to make a difference in people's lives to give them hope. receiving a masters degree would open the doors for me to get into a management position where i would be able to do more for people. health matters to all of us. that's wh
massachusetts did something quite extraordinary, elected a republican senator to stop obama care, you pushed it through anyway. the so entirely on a partisan basis, instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this important topic, you pushed through something that you thought was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in the legislature, 87% democrat, we worked together. 200 legislators, only 2 voted against the plan by the time we were finished. we didn't raise taxes. you raised them by a trillion under obama care. we didn't cut medicare. of course, we don't have medicare but we didn't cut medicare by $716 billion. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they're going to receive. we didn't also do something that i think a number of people across this country recognize, which is put people in a position where they're going to lose the insurance they had and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mckinsey and com

. >> pelley: 200,000 a month. anthony, thanks very much. with just the 32 days to go before the election, of course, the jobs report was topic "a" among candidates. no president since f.d.r. has been reelected with an unemployment rate this high. since f.d.r., president reagan was reelected with the highest unemployment rate in 1984. during his first term, unemployment rose to 10.8%. by election day it was down to 7.2%, which looked so much better in comparison. for mr. obama, unemployment peaked in 2009 at 10%, now three e years later it's 7.8%. for both presidents, unemployment generally trended down all the way to election day. as you might expect, president obama and governor romney saw these numbers quite differently and we have two reports tonight. first, nancy cordes covering the president and she's in cleveland. nancy? >> reporter: scott, you could practically see the relief on the president's face today and not just because this news helped to change the subject from his shaky debate performance. high unemployment has been an albatross around his neck the past four years. today
the electi election, he says his big bold idea is never mind. and the fact is that if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only effect high-income individuals to avoid raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math, arithmetic. we do share encouraging business growth. at the same time my plan has lowered taxes for 98% of families, i also lowered taxes for small businesses 18 times, and what i want to do, is continue the tax rates, the tax cuts that we put into place, for small businesses and families. but i have said for incomes over $250,000 per year, we should go back to the rates when bill clint or was president, when we went from deficit to surplus and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. the reason this is important is because by doing that, we can not only reduce the deficit, not only encourage job growth through small businesses but make the investments necessary in education and energy. and we do have a difference when it comes to division division s of smal

in the presidential debates in this election cycle between president barack obama and former massachusetts governor mitt romney. the stage is ready in denver, colorado. the university of denver. and all of the expectations management to the contrary, the two men you're going to see tonight are very good debaters. they have four ivy league degrees between them, after all, and 50 debates between them, though not against each other until tonight. there is a critical third man on that stage tonight in denver. that's the moderator, jim lehrer of pbs. he's done a dozen of these. and the rules, which he will announce at the start, give him broad leeway to guide the conversation and the debate. it is a cold room in denver. the campaigns wanted the temperature low. and it's not likely to stay that way once we get under way. both men have been prepping for days. this happens to be the obamas' 20th wedding anniversary. moments ago we saw a warm embrace between mrs. romney and mrs. obama. they both met each other at the front of the hall. their hiss, this is the first of three meetings debate style between the
. the headline, carol, 7.8% is the unemployment rate. one more jobs report until the election. >> okay. so the political implications of this already coming in. in fact, we just got an e-mail from conservatives. this is what they're saying, christine. conservatives are challenging the legitimacy of the labor department number. can someone explain how the jobs added up right where economists were projecting and yet the rate fell to below 8%? also jack welch, the former ge guy. >> yep. >> he's tweeting this morning and saying, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. i mean -- so is it possible the labor department is lying or has changed these numbers in some way? >> look, these numbers are often revised. usually when you have a vibrant growing jobs market a revision of 86,000 doesn't make any difference at all. you have much more jobs being created. we don't have that right now. in terms of why the two numbers are different, there are two different surveys the government does. hou household survey where they ask people wheer they're e
that may carry us through the election time, but let me tell you something, with volatility the way it is and the vix being where it is, traders and investors are able to stay in this market, stay long in this market, but still buy cheap protection. so instead we really see a breakout of sorts in the fear index, in the volatility, i really think that the trend is still to the up side. >> so you think the trend is to the up side even though in the fourth quarter we have the election, the fiscal cliff, europe popping up again and all these concerns about china, you put them all on the side burner? >> until something absolutely comes to the forefront, kryes. in f. we g if we get through the election and the fiscal cliff is still on the docket and in peril, that's a different story. but until -- it's almost like the little boy that cried wolf. until something actually happens, these guys down here and really anybody in the marketplace can buy such cheap protection. there's no reason really not to stay in the market. maybe in some of the more defensive plays, but no reason not to stay on
seizing a moment you didn't expect to happen. >> there you go again. >> most moments so far this election have been poorly phrased comments. >> if you've got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> i like being able to fire people that provide services to me. >> they'll put y'all back in chains. >> the media call those gaffes, but often the media don't know. when ed musky lost the '072 primary because he looked like he teared up defending his wife, everyone said candidates can't career, because that's week, but then in 2008 hillary clinton cried. >> you know, i have so many opportunities from this country. >> she began to tear up. >> don't want to fall backwards. >> she showed being human. >> you know, this is very personal for me. >> pundits pounced. >> people perceive that as weakness. >> yeah, i think they will and they should. >> makes her look like her campaign is in trouble. >> the day before showed clinton 10 points behind. the next day, she beat obama in the new hampshire primary. kind of comeback that new hampshire has just given me. >> she tears up
